DW News published this video item, entitled “Is UN’s goal of zero world hunger by 2030 moving out of reach? | DW News” – below is their description.

Hunger remains one of humanity’s greatest challenges. The target is to achieve zero world hunger by 2030. That’s the United Nations’ goal. But the world is a long way from achieving that. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the number of people without enough to eat is rising — in 2020, more than 750 million people went hungry – maybe as many as 811 million. That’s around one tenth of the global population. The worst hit regions are Asia, with 418 million, and Africa with 282 million. Researchers believe the situation in Africa has dramatically worsened.
